Working to improve the health and wellbeing of older people in rural and regional Victoria

Age-Friendly North East Victoria was created in 2018 as a common platform for state, regional, and local governments, community organisations, researchers, and older people to work together to make northeast Victoria a great place in which to age.

Age-Friendly North East Victoria aims to improve the health and wellbeing of older people by identifying, implementing, and advocating for solutions using the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Network for Age-Friendly Cities and Communities (AFCC) approach.

Age-friendly communities foster the health, well-being, and participation of people as they age. They are accessible, equitable, inclusive, safe, promote health, and prevent or delay the onset of disease and common age-related decline.

The United Nations has proclaimed 2020-2030 the Decade of Healthy Ageing, calling for sustained global action to generate transformative change in four interconnected areas: address ageism, create age-friendly communities, deliver integrated care, and provide long-term care.
